Years ago, we were approached by our local swimming club, Ormskirk Otters. They wanted a website and knew we were a local company so wanted to “keep it local”.
We designed and hosted their site for them and everyone was happy.
A year or so later they came back to us asking if we could expand on the site to include a members area. They wanted the ability for their members to be able to log in and update their details.
After numerous meetings to decide on the basic features needed, SwimClub Manager version 1 was launched in 2008.
Since then, it has gone from strength to strength and is now one of if not THE UK’s most popular swim club management system.
We still run and maintain SwimClub Manager today and are constantly updating and adding new features as you can see from the blog.
The public-facing website is built on WordPress. There are various features such as:
- Club directory
There is a dedicated mobile app in the Apple AppStore and Google Play Store that allows club members to view and edit their details on the go.
The web app itself is built on the .Net framework and is hosted on the Microsoft Azure platform. It uses the following platform features:
- SQL Databases
- Storage – blobs
- Storage – queues
- Storage – tables
